For what type of skin is hyaluronic acid characteristics and differences

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most powerful moisturizers known. It is naturally present in our body, but over time it becomes necessary to add extra to improve skin hydration. But... what type of skin is hyaluronic acid for? Read on and you will find out.


What is hyaluronic acid?

When it comes to hydration, hyaluronic acid is king. It is a molecule in the skin, joints, muscles, and many other components of the body. It is capable of retaining up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It helps to retain water in the tissues, maintaining their elasticity and firmness.

Our body produces it naturally, but over time the synthesis of hyaluronic acid slows down. This becomes evident after the age of 30, the age at which the amount of this component in our body begins to decrease. Signs such as dull, dehydrated skin and wrinkles start to become visible. At 60, we only retain 10%.

In addition to moisturizing, its main function, hyaluronic acid helps stimulate collagen production, reduces oxidative stress, and strengthens the skin's barrier function. When this barrier does not function properly, the skin becomes dehydrated and exposed to external aggressions. By reinforcing this barrier, hyaluronic acid not only hydrates our skin but also helps to slow down the passage of time.

In summary, hyaluronic acid has the following benefits:

  • ANTIOXIDANT ACTION: protects against free radicals and UV damage
  • STRENGTHENS THE BARRIER FUNCTION: thanks to the cellular renewal of the epidermis
  • ANTI-WRINKLE FILLING EFFECT: provides extra volume to the skin, smoothing wrinkles and expression lines.


Is hyaluronic acid for all skin types?

To have healthy skin it is essential to moisturize it: we will provide softness, and elasticity and recover its natural glow. We have seen that hyaluronic acid is key to achieving this, but is it suitable for all skin types? The answer is a resounding yes. Hyaluronic acid is for all skin types: dry, combination, and oily because all skin needs hydration, including oily skin.


Dry skin

Dehydrated skin is not the same as dry skin. We tend to confuse the need to moisturize with the need to care for dry skin. As we have already seen, all skin types need hydration. Of course, dry skin requires daily moisturizing care in which hyaluronic acid is the star.

To moisturize this type of skin, we need to act both on the surface and in-depth. For this, we have low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which can penetrate through the most superficial layer of the skin and act in previously unreachable places. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid acts only on the surface of the skin where it forms a moisturizing film and a flash effect. Thus we achieve a multi-layer hydration: superficial and deep, ideal for dry skin, although very beneficial for all skin types.


Oily skin

Despite what many people think, oily skin DOES need moisturizing. The fact that they generate excess sebum and have shine does not mean that they do not require hydration. All skin, to be healthy, must be moisturized, and oily skin is no exception.

This type of skin requires anti-inflammatory, sebum-regulating, and antibacterial care, but also moisturizing. Oily skin throws much of the skin's function out of balance. It can alter the horny layer - the most superficial part of the epidermis - and irritate the skin. This can lead to inflammation, which can cause microorganisms to proliferate. The result of this chain of events is that the barrier function is weakened and increased transepidermal water loss occurs. In conclusion, oily and dehydrated skin. Therefore, providing extra hydration with hyaluronic acid is necessary for this type of skin.


Combination skin

Combination skin is recognized because it is oily on the forehead, nose, and chin (T-zone) and normal or dry on the cheeks.

 Moisturizing can be more complicated than other skin types because it combines dry and oily areas. To do this correctly, we must choose cosmetics that do not contain oils. When applying them, be more generous on the cheeks and less on the rest of the face.


Keys for including hyaluronic acid in your routine

We know that hyaluronic acid is for all skin types. What products should we include in a skincare routine in which hyaluronic acid is the protagonist?

Facial cleansing

Cleansing the face is the most important step in any beauty routine. We cannot aspire to have moisturized and healthy skin if we have not previously cleansed it. A good facial cleansing, twice a day, will make it easier for the moisturizer we apply afterward to be more effective since it will be applied on skin free of impurities.

In this 👉 article we tell you in detail all the benefits of a good facial cleansing.


Eye contour

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and the first to show the passage of time, especially in expression lines and, later, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. We must resort to cosmetics formulated exclusively for this area.


Facial serum

A serum is a concentrate, formulated with multiple active ingredients, which exerts an intensive action. It is usually applied after the eye contour. Its light texture is quickly absorbed and facilitates the penetration of active ingredients.

HD BLUMOIST Serum moisturizes and protects the skin from blue light (HEV radiation), which is generated by electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, computer screens, etc. This radiation is one of the causes of digital aging. It contains hyaluronic acid Hyaluronic acid of low and high molecular weight for complete hydration, a Natural Moisturizing Factor, and BLUE LIGHT SHIELD Technology (HEV Filter), among other active ingredients.

Apply before your usual cream to take advantage of its benefits.


Facial moisturizing cream

After the serum, it is advisable to apply a facial moisturizer to complement and enhance its benefits. We recommend HD BLUMOIST AQUA GEL. In addition to having a very complete moisturizing formula, it will provide you with a unique experience of use. On contact with the skin, its evanescent texture transforms into water droplets that are immediately absorbed. And best of all; it will leave your skin hydrated, but without feeling greasy.

When the two are used together, skin hydration increases by a further 78% even eight hours after application, according to an independent study. Ninety-five percent of the volunteers who participated in this study say BLUMOIST: "deeply moisturizes, prevents dehydration, softens the skin and leaves no greasy feeling".



If facial cleansing is the first step in any skincare routine, sun protection should be the last. It is just as important to keep the skin free of impurities as it is to protect it from the sun's rays. The most innovative sunscreens even have an anti-aging action. Remember to apply sunscreen all year round, not just in summer.

Creams with hyaluronic acid are recommended for all skin types, even sensitive skin. If you haven't tried them yet, go for it! Your skin will thank you.
